Tell the Biden-Harris Administration that our communities can't wait any longer

One year into the Administration, we demand immediate action to protect immigrants who call this country home. The Biden-Harris Administration must keep its promises and work with Congress to deliver a path to citizenship. It must also exercise its executive authority and:

  • Protect people from family and community separation, using existing executive authority to grant protection and work authorization, including through robust application of the Temporary Protected Status statute;
  • Reduce harm and address racial disparities through transformation of the enforcement system, including by reversing the expansion of the detention system, closing facilities, and releasing people from detention without over-reliance on punitive, surveillance-based “alternatives” to detention; and
  • End the abuse and deportation of BIPOC and TGNCIQ migrants and restore meaningful access to asylum at the southern border.
